Today I am bringing you a post I am super excited about!
If you didn't know, I love to read, and just thinking of new books and their stories makes me super excited!
I am going to share with you the top 4 young adult romance books I really want to read and a little bit about each them. Enjoy!
1. Ps, I Still Love You by Jenny Han
I want to read this book soooo badly! It is the sequel to To All The Boys I've Loved Before which I absolutely LOVED! It was published in May but I still haven't gotten my hands on it!! If you want to know what the first book is all about and my thoughts on it, read my mini review here!
Here is the synopsis from Goodreads:
Lara Jean didn’t expect to really fall for Peter.
She and Peter were just pretending. Except suddenly they weren’t. Now Lara Jean is more confused than ever.
When another boy from her past returns to her life, Lara Jean’s feelings for him return too. Can a girl be in love with two boys at once?
In this charming and heartfelt sequel to the New York Times bestseller To All the Boys I've Loved Before, we see first love through the eyes of the unforgettable Lara Jean. Love is never easy, but maybe that’s part of what makes it so amazing.
Will Lara Jean end up with Peter? I hope so, they were so sweet together!
To All The Boys I've Loved Before was such a sweet, heartfelt book, I hope PS. I Still Love You will be able to live up to it. I have really high hopes for this book, firstly, because Jenny Han is my favourite author ever and writes super relatable books, and secondly, because the first book was AMAZING! I get fuzzy feelings thinking about it now. I definitely recommend reading Jenny Han's books if you love a good, relatable teenage love story.
2. The Heir by Keira Cass
I am so excited to read The Heir (I have a copy sitting on my bookshelf waiting to be read)! It is book 4 of The Selection Series, but told from the point of view of America Singer's (the protagonist of the first three books in the series) daughter. The Selection is basically a dystopian series about a competition where a group of 35 girls enter to win the Prince's heart. I would describe it as a mix between the Bachelor and Divergent series as there are heaps of swoon-worthy moments and girl drama, but there is also a caste system and revolutionaries who are trying to take down the monarch much like the rebel force in Insurgent and the segregation of the population into different factions.
The first three books were amazing, but the next one sounds great also! *SPOILER ALERT*If you haven't read them yet, don't read the synopsis below from Goodreads!!:
Princess Eadlyn has grown up hearing endless stories about how her mother and father met. Twenty years ago, America Singer entered the Selection and won the heart of Prince Maxon—and they lived happily ever after. Eadlyn has always found their fairy-tale story romantic, but she has no interest in trying to repeat it. If it were up to her, she'd put off marriage for as long as possible.
But a princess's life is never entirely her own, and Eadlyn can't escape her very own Selection—no matter how fervently she protests.
Eadlyn doesn't expect her story to end in romance. But as the competition begins, one entry may just capture Eadlyn's heart, showing her all the possibilities that lie in front of her . . . and proving that finding her own happily ever after isn't as impossible as she's always thought.
Awww! It sounds so sweet! I'm excited to read the book from the point of view of a girl who has her own Selection, - it's like the Bachelorette - I think it will be really good. Also, can we just talk about how pretty the book cover is?! It's stunning! The dress, the mirrors, the colours, everything!
3. The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West
This book sounds really cute and sweet! I feel like it would be a bit like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, which makes me really excited! I'm a sucker for cute books like these. I haven't read anything by Kasie West before, but I really want to read this book.
Here is the description from Goodreads:
When Gia Montgomery's boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she'd been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend—two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.
The problem is that days after prom, it's not the real Bradley she's thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn't even know. But tracking him down doesn't mean they're done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend's graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.
Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.
It sounds like there is also some drama involved, but that makes it all the more interesting! I need to pick this up soon.
4. The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick
The Boy Most Likely To is the sequel to My Life Next Door, but from the perspective of Tim and Alice, who are linked to the characters in the first book. My Life Next Door was so sweet and I loved the main characters Samantha Reed and Jase Garrett. I fell in love with the loud Garrett family and the storyline which kept you hooked. It explored a few deeper issues, but that added to its spark. It was just an overall amazing book and I really want to read the next one.
Description from Goodreads:
Surprises abound and sparks ignite in the highly anticipated, utterly romantic companion to My Life Next Door
Tim Mason was The Boy Most Likely To:
- find the liquor cabinet blindfolded
- need a liver transplant
- drive his car into a house
Alice Garrett was The Girl Most Likely To:
- well, not date her little brother’s baggage-burdened best friend, for starters.
For Tim, it wouldn’t be smart to fall for Alice. For Alice, nothing could be scarier than falling for Tim. But Tim has never been known for making the smart choice, and Alice is starting to wonder if the “smart” choice is always the right one. When these two crash into each other, they crash hard.
Then the unexpected consequences of Tim’s wild days come back to shock him. He finds himself in a situation that isn’t all it appears to be, that he never could have predicted . . . but maybe should have.
And Alice is caught in the middle.
Told in Tim’s and Alice’s distinctive, disarming, entirely compelling voices, this return to the world of My Life Next Door is a story about failing first, trying again, and having to decide whether to risk it all once more.
The Boy Most Likely To sounds like a great book, which I feel would include more of the Garrett family and briefly visit Jase and Samantha which means we get to read a bit more of their story as well as Alice's and Tim's! Yay!
